'JUST FOR FUN': BRIDGE JUMPER
A drunken man jumped off Chroy Changvar bridge on Tuesday afternoon, but was, fortunately, rescued by police who were patrolling the river. Police identified the man as 26-year-old Hok Moung Rith of Phnom Penh's Meanchey district. After his rescue, the man seemed to be too drunk to answer questions, so his reason for jumping was not clear. He told police only that he had drunk too much and wanted to jump for fun.

WIFE TRAFFICKER GETS NINE YEARS
A man from Phnom Penh's Choam Chao commune, Dangkor district, was sentenced on Friday to nine years in prison after being convicted of human trafficking. The charges stemmed from an incident in June 2007, when the man forced his wife to have sex with another man to settle a US$15 debt.
